What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Sunday Sweets For April (Baby) Showers

Did you survive Giraffe Watch this month? You know, that thing where the entire internet held its collective breath waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby?

(Spoiler Alert: April had the baby... in April. She's meta like that.)

If so, then LOOKIE:

(By Little Apple Cakes)

How perfect is this?!

In fact, I decided that April Showers was just the theme we needed this week.

Although these won't all have giraffes. Sorry.

 

I think you'll forgive me once you see this, though:

(By Cup N' Cake)

Because squeeee!

 

A moment of appreciation, please, for the parents who threw a ninja-themed baby shower:

(By BCakeNY)

You long-time readers might recall John and painted a ninja-themed nursery once, so this sings the song of my geeky lil' heart.

 

As a life-long lover of puns, I also dig the more literal interpretations of a "shower" cake:

(By Always With Cake!)

Plus how great are those colors?

 

Or if you're having twins, how about this Sweet take on "two peas in a pod"?

(By McGreevey Cakes)

So cute!

 

Of course, the classics never go out of style:

(By Little Hunnys Cakery)

And sometimes a cute little stork with pastel bunting is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Or duckies!

(By The Cake Cuppery)

 

Or a baby vampire in a gothic spiked buggy!

(By Black Cherry Cake Company)

Wait. OK, maybe that's not exactly traditional... but I still love it.

 

Will I ever get tired of sleepy woodland creatures on cakes?

(By Cottontail Cake Studio)

No, no I will not. ::grabby hands::

(That fox! Ah! And the flower swag is perfection.)

 

And finally, I'll end with the one I fell in love with for its unusual, stunning design:

(By Silvia Mancini)

YES PLEASE.

See, THIS is the way to do a belly cake! A gorgeous blend of 2D painting with 3D sculpting, and the flower is just the right crowning touch. Pun intended. Love it.

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope it's extra Sweet!

Friday Favs 4/21/17

PARENTAL NOTE: Best keep the little ones away today. I think this is mostly safe for work, though. Mostly. [evil grin]

 

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

I'm sensing there's a story here:

Just me?

 

And I kinda love how this bakery advertises that they're 50 years old - so mature! so established! - RIGHT NEXT to their poop cakes:

Anyone else immediately "go" to this?

We all are, Danny. WE ALL ARE.

(Also, can we talk about how intentional poop cakes don't look NEARLY as sh*tty as the unintentional ones? No? Allllllrighty then.)

 

Bakers, minions, makers and binions - we've been through this. Right? I mean, I thought I was *very* clear last time. Apparently this needs repeating, though, so here goes.

Ahem hem hem.

UNICORNS DON'T HAVE DONGS ON THEIR HEADS.

Buck up, it's gonna be a bum-py ride.

I'm starting to think you guys are missing the point on purpose, just so I'll write more of my awesome "horny" puns. And they are awesome. But still. Cut it out.

 

And speaking of things that are happy to see you, here's the one kind of troll you WANT on the internet:

(Tutorial here)

 

...aaaand here's how a baker trolls a Troll cake:

Oh.

 

Oh dear.

 

Thanks to Laura H., Susan O., Anony M., & Anony T. for the most excellent wreckporting.
